20th anniversary of Christian Louboutin

25 Nov

The French magician celebrated his brand’s 20th anniversary this week. I don’t think there are a lot of people out there who don’t appreciate his design; obviously there has been much to celebrate for the fashion world.

It’s possible that I don’t like one or two of his designs, but generally I truly admire his work. I won’t continue praising him now by writing 20 more lines that you won’t read, I let the pictures do the talking. Bottom line is:

There are 2 pages about him in the November issue of InStyle magazine:

Those Louboutins again!

2 Jun

As it has probably appeared to you, I haven’t been posting Louboutins too often lately. The reason for this is that they appear so frequently, that if I had always posted them in time, there wouldn’t have been enough time/space for other shoes. Luckily enough, Elise is busy with analyzing the work of the Frenchman, so if you’re looking for a Loubi-therapy, spend some time over at her place 🙂

However, my “to post” list of CL has grown so massive that I’ve decided it’s time to post parts of his genius work again.

To start with, I have the famous cage boots in various forms:

The Pigalle is officially timeless.

I’ve selected the following pictures because

  • Alicia Key’s version of these pumps is simply beautiful
  • I really like the whole look of Julie Benz (hair, coat, top, pants)
  • Top model Selita dons the original & the newest version of the Pigalle

The last pair is the shiny-shiny Poseidon, I like how it reflects light on the floor:

Do I see the older Heidi Montag in Victoria Silvstedt?

Hope you enjoyed it, now go shopping! 🙂

Speaking of fantastic photos, today I share another interview with you. Despite missing out on the first round (where I have interviewed Sam from Daily Fashion Boost and Celine from/aka The Shoe Girl) she was still kind enough to send me her answers and pictures.

Who am I talking about, you ask. I said, fantastic photos – does this ring any bells? Okay, it’s Hanh from Life in travel!

D: At what age did you start to show interest for fashion in general? How did it start?

H: I was actually interested in fashion at an early age. When I was about 10 years old I started making clothes by myself just using my imagination. It was not well made but I had fun. Being a girl, I just wanted to look pretty.

D: What do you think about the importance of the shoes in an outfit?

H: The shoes are a very important element for an outfit. Pairs of fabulous shoes make a boring outfit become an exciting, stylish one.

D: What is your opinion of fashion trends? How do you decide, what to follow and what is not worth it?

H: Fashion trends are fun as long as we are not going crazy and taking it too seriously. You have to understand your body and your taste to apply it for yourself. To me, fashion is all about fun.

D: Who is/are your favorite shoe designer(s)?

H: Gosh..I really don’t have one. Whatever they look fabulous I love. Although, I have many Givenchy, Ysl, Giuseppe, etc… shoes in my closet.

D: Show me your favorite shoe of your own wardrobe!

H: For now, I love Proenza boots.

D: Sketch/draw your dream shoe!

H: This is my drawing for my dream shoes for spring/summer 2010.
Sorry for not good at drawing a portion of the shoes, but it’s a idea how the shoes would look like.

Thank you for the interview, I really appreciate it! Thanks for your time!

I wish everyone a pleasant week!

MTV VMA 2009

14 Sep

Ooops, the Sunday post will be postponed till next Sunday, I had no time to do it.

However, there is still a lot to talk about! I want to post everything that’s going on out there right now, yet I know I shouldn’t 🙂

Let’s begin this week with some shoes of this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Though there was no “Help!” post yesterday, you can still help me. I couldn’t ID these shoes yet, I hope you can help me:

Any outfits, shoes you like/dislike?

Have a nice week! Next time (that will be Wednesday, I hope) I’ll be back with pictures from the Ney York Fashion Week!
